Halloween 2009

The parade of princesses, X-Men, fairies, clowns, spidermen, ballet dancers, soldiers, ghosts and raggedy-ann dolls is dwindling like the Halloween candy in the bowl by the front door.  The innocence of children always warms my heart and I love giving out the candy on All Hallows Eve.

The Halloween costumes were pretty standard this year.  No one was dressed as Nancy Pelosi's 1,990 page health care plan, or as Nancy Pelosi for that matter.  Kids are wonderfully non-political.

Well in another 29 minutes I'm turning off the porch light and spending the rest of Halloween reading my latest book:  SuperFreakonomics by Levitt & Dubner.  I read Freakonomics yesterday.  The authors say that if the book has a message it is that people respond to incentives.  Indeed, it is interesting to see how people align themselves with their own best interests, all the time.  The authors say that while morality tells us how the world should work, economics tells us how it actually does work.

That can be very useful information for navigating through life.  Indeed, it explains so much about how and why humans behave the way they do.

R.S. McCain Heading up to Plattsburgh, NY for Hoffman Rally

I just spoke to Robert Stacy McCain as he was pumping gas.  He's on the way to Plattsburgh, New York for a Hoffman rally where he says he will "hang around with Hoffman, Pataki" and others.  Stacy was upbeat about Dede Scozzafava's withdrawal but said she should have done it two weeks ago, not just before the election.  He is hoping that, if Scozzafava endorses anyone, she endorses the Democrat Bill Owen.  That would fire up the base!

Today I will create a Twitter account so I can more easily obtain breaking news and keep up with Stacy McCain more readily.

The Other McCain reports that Newt Gingrich has now reluctantly endorsed Doug Hoffman since his first choice has dropped out.  Gingrich was last seen trying hard to scrub the egg off his face.

Scozzafava Drops Out: NY 23 a New Race

Dede Scozzafava, the liberal Republican running for a congressional seat in upstate New York, has dropped out of the race.  The special election is to be held Tuesday and polls were showing a dead heat between the Conservative Party candidate, Doug Hoffman, and the Democrat Bill Owens.  Scozzafava was running a distant third.

At first blush it would seem to be a boon for Doug Hoffman; now Republicans who were split between Hoffman and Scozzafava may move in Hoffman's direction.  However, Scozzafava's name will still appear on the ballot so voters can still vote for her whether she is officially running or not.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Read more about it here and here.

The Other McCain has a good article on it too.

RICO Statutes: a Weapon Against Militant Islam in the United States

Pastorius at The Astute Bloggers has an excellent article about how the RICO statutes (created at the federal level to deal with crime and racketeering) can be used against militant Islam in the United States.  The article is called RICO - The Beginning of the End of Radical Islam In America - The Feds Are Claiming A "Criminal Conspiracy."

There are more interesting facts, e.g. how western nations like Belgium, Germany and France are dealing with the quasi-religion Scientology.  A court in France convicted the French branch of this "church" of organized fraud.

Pastorius argues that the legal weapons we need to defend western civilization may already be on the books.

Zero Fiddles While Good Men Die; Salutes Coffins of the Fallen

President Obama has been getting a lot of deserved criticism for his inaction and indecisiveness on Afghanistan.  Just as Nero fiddled while Rome burned, Zero fiddles while good men die.  However, isn't every political issue managed by the right amount of posing and posturing?  It's all just a PR game, right?  All it takes is mouthing the right slogan, striking the right pose, making it all into a big Photo-op.

So President Zero may not provide the troops his own general has been begging for, but he does show up this one time to salute the coffins resulting from his lack of action.  That makes everything all right again.

Thanks, President Zero!

Rush Limbaugh: "Vote for Doug Hoffman!"

On his program this morning, Rush Limbaugh endorsed Doug Hoffman for the special congressional election next Tuesday in New York's 23rd district.  Hoffman was turned down by the Republican Party apparatchiks for their official endorsement, choosing instead to appoint RINO Dede Scozzafava as the official Republican candidate.  Hoffman than ran for the seat on the Conservative Party ticket.  Polls show him ahead of both the Democrat and the RINO Republican.

Rush Limbaugh said that, on occasion, both major party candidates are so objectionable that the only sane course is to run against them on a third party or independent ticket.  He gave examples of similar situations in the past.

Rush Limbaugh came right out and told his audience:  "Vote for Doug Hoffman!"  Rush's endorsement has to help Doug Hoffman.  The election is now less than a week away.  If Hoffman wins, it will be a successful rebellion against the do-nothing Republican establishment and help fire the conservative revolution.

Jonah Goldberg Endorses Doug Hoffman for NY23!

Over at the Corner, Jonah Goldberg explains William F. Buckley's voting philosophy:  vote for the most conservative candidate electable.  In this race between Doug Hoffman and Dede Scozzafava, that means Doug Hoffman is the one to vote for.  Jonah calls it "a no brainer."

France Grows a Pair: Burqas, Illegal Muslim Immigrants Not Welcome

According to the UK Mail Online, France appears to be waking up to its internal Islamic threat.  Burqas are banned and Illegal Muslim immigrants are being deported by the thousands.  Further, France is taking steps to preserve its language and culture in the face of Muslim immigration into the West.
France is to adopt a series of measures to 'reaffirm pride' in the country and combat Islamic fundamentalism.
They include everybody receiving lessons in the nation's Christian history and children singing the national anthem.
Using words which infuriated ethnic minority groups and Socialist opponents, immigration minister Eric Besson also said he wanted 'foreigners to speak better French'.
Mr Besson defended a decision to send illegal Afghan immigrants - all of them Muslim - back to Kabul on charter flights organised in conjunction with the British government last week, saying there would be many more.  
More than 21,000 people have been deported from France this year - with 27,000 the ultimate target, said Mr Besson.
He also reignited the debate about face and body-covering Muslim veils, saying they should definitely be banned.
'For me, there should be no burqas on the street,' said Mr Besson. 'The burqa is against national values - an affront to women's rights and equality.'
Some aspects of the France we used to know and love are reappearing. It is a good sign.

Update:  I did this Photoshop today, showing the Mona Lisa on the left, and the Mona Lisa after Europe is fully Islamicized on the right.  However, that really isn't accurate.  If Islam ever gains control of Europe, there will be no art like the Mona Lisa.  Islam forbids drawing or painting people as they consider it a form of idolatry.  The Mona Lisa's likely fate would be the fire, along with most of the other paintings and sculptures in the Louvre.  When you consider that a lot of this art is of women, some nude, the fate of this art would appear certain under Islam.

Imagine a France with no Louvre, no art, no Mona Lisa, no wine, no music, no Poodles or cats or other pets.  Are you starting to get the picture?  That's Islam.

Why Progressives Hate Conservatives (by David Horowitz)

I found this quote from David Horowitz at  It was taken from Horowitz's book "How to Beat the Democrats."

Their [progressives'] cyncism flows from the very perception they have of right and wrong. They do it for noble ends. They do it for the progressive faith. They do it because they see themselves as gods, as having the power — through correct politics — to redeem the world. It is that terrifyingly exalted ambition that fuels their spiritual arrogance and justifies their means.

And that is why they hate conservatives. They hate you because you are killers of their dream. You are defenders of a Constitution that thwarts their cause. They hate you because your “reactionary” commitment to individual rights, to a single standard and to a neutral and limited state obstructs their progressive designs. They hate you because you are believers in property and its rights as the cornerstones of prosperity and human freedom; because you do not see the market economy as a mere instrument for acquiring personal wealth and stocking political war chests, but as both means and end.

Conservatives who think progressives are misinformed idealists will always be blind-sided by the sheer malice of the left — by the cynicism of those who pride themselves on their principles; by the viciousness of those who champion sensitivity; by the intolerance of those who call themselves liberal; and by the ruthless disregard for the well-being of the poor on the part of those who preen themselves as their champions.

Conservatives are surprised because they see progressives as merely misguided, when they are, in fact, morally – and ontologically — misdirected. They are the messianists of a false religious faith. Since the redeemed future that justifies their existence and rationalizes their hypocrisy can never be realized, what really motivates progressives is a modern idolatry: their limitless passion for the continuance of Them.

Purge Newt!

Newt Gingrich didn't have much credibility with me after I learned he believes in man made global warming.  Now the old Republican retread is denouncing the Party's base by endorsing a leftist for NY 23rd, one Dede Scozzafava; he has called conservative opposition to Scozzafava as "a purge" of the GOP that will return Obama to the White House for a second term.

However, for the second day in a row, polls show the Conservative Party challenger, Doug Hoffman, leading both the Democrat and the Rino in voter popularity.  Hoffman is over the Democrat by 5% and runs ahead of Rino Scozzafava by 20%.  It looks like Newt's endorsement has done little but embarrass him.

One thing the GOP's Good Ole Boy Club had better learn fast, is that we, the base, aren't going to put up with them anymore.  For years we have had to hold our noses and vote for some Rino like John McCain because there wasn't anyone better on the ballot.  Our choices on the Road to Serfdom consisted of the Democrat shortcut down Socialism Avenue, or the Republican scenic route through Big Government Park.  We would arrive at the same place (Red Square), but the Republicans would get us there more slowly.

No more.   NO MORE RINOS is our slogan and our battle cry.  We must continue to purge the false leaders and appeasers, the Quislings and the Vichy collaborators.  A liberal with an R after his name is a liberal still.  The GOP is not an end in itself but the means to an end:  more individual freedom, less taxes, less government.

They Took My JAWB!

Last week I had a consulting project and now I don't.  This has happened before -- you get hired for a project and then the project is cancelled or changed so that your input is no longer needed.  I won't say too much about this project because of confidentiality rules for accountants.  However, I will say this:  I found a large error in previously released numbers for this publicly held corporation.  In such situations SEC filed reports are restated and reissued, the Corporation gets a bad report on their Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, it is all very embarrassing and the controller gets fired, and maybe the CFO too.

The controller thanked me profusely for "a good find" and then told me the project was taking a new direction and I needn't come in anymore.  What a shock.

Fox News to be Fined $30 Million for Criticizing Obama? Story Appears False.

Here's a story allegedly from the Huffington Post, via Right Handed Pitcher.  However, I have doubts as to the story's accuracy and authenticity.  The link supplied to the Huffington Post didn't work.
In a press release given to the Huffington Post and other press outlets this morning [October 20], White House Communications Director Anita Dunn stated that the Federal Communications Commission was asked to fine the FOX Corporation for violations of the Broadcast Decency Enforcement Act of 2005. This came after repeated racist and derogatory attacks made on FOXNews over the last two years.
In accordance with the 2005 law, every time the network featured a "particularly offensive" or "flagrantly untruthful" segment, a fine is levied. White House officials estimate the 2008-2009 fine to be nearing $29 million.
I can find no other news stories that corroborate the above tale so I conclude that the story is false.   Don't repeat it as factual unless someone can produce credible proof.  This could be a false story planted for political mischief.

Obama's Plans to Impoverish Americans

I heard a discussion on KSFO radio today coming back from work.  It seems that Obama wants to cede our sovereignty to an international government that will oversee mass transfers of wealth from the producing nations to impoverished third world countries.  The alleged reason for this is to "fight global warming."  The theory goes that since the producing nations (the ones that create wealth through work and investment) have a much higher carbon footprint than the Third World, so owe the Third World big time for ruining the planet.  When this happens, of course, western jobs will disappear by the millions, investment will slow if not cease, and we will become a Third World country ourselves.  We are going to "share the poverty," all in the name of mythical climate change, world government and socialism for all.

Take onto that cap and trade, higher energy costs, higher income taxes and a federal VAT (value added tax, a kind of sales tax), we will soon enjoy a lifestyle similar to the citizens of Cuba, Haiti or Angola.

The KSFO speakers say this is by design, and they quote Obama as saying that great poverty opens the door for sweeping changes in a society.  Obama has plans to make those changes in our society, making us into a far left, impoverished and socialist tyranny.  Well that sounds like some sort of conspiracy theory to me, but even if he doesn't have such plans, what would he be doing different if he did?  Not much, I'd say.

A couple of months back I read the anti-Global Warming book, "Green Hell," which tells what the radical environmentalists want to do to us.  Basically, the same thing:  impoverish us by design.  You see, poor people don't make much carbon.  Many of their plans seek to save the environment by suppressing population growth.  They advocate closing dams and cutting off water supplies (to places like the Fresno area) so less food will be produced.  Less food, fewer jobs, less water equals less people.  And people are the curse of the Goddess Gaia (aka Earth), who would be so much better off without them.  Hey, if you want to make an omelet you have to break some eggs.

Someone call me when the revolution starts.  I'll be ready.

How Many People Has Islam Murdered?

Infidel Bloggers Alliance has a post today about a new book on Islam.  That's it on the right -- Islam: Evil in the Name of God.
The author of the book points out that Islam is actually a declaration of war on all kafirs -- those of us who do not believe in Islam, Allah or Muhammad.  He is only partially correct in this.  Islam is a declaration of war on all humanity.

Over the centuries since Muhammad the Megalomaniac invented his nasty little religion, his followers have murdered millions in the name of God and continue to add to the tally to the present day.

I find it interesting that the author of this book states that 270 million people have been murdered by Islam.  I have always wondered how high the number goes.  I have read that as many as 100 million Hindus alone have been murdered by Islam, so the figure is believable.  That's almost the current population of the United States!

If so, then I would agree with the author that Islamic murder constitutes the greatest holocaust in history.

Rush Limbaugh 's Rebuttal of the Smears and My Boycott of the National Football League

Rush Limbaugh has written an article for the Wall Street Journal entitled "The Race Card, Football and Me."  Rush writes in his own defense:
I never said I supported slavery and I never praised James Earl Ray. How sick would that be? Just as sick as those who would use such outrageous slanders against me or anyone else who never even thought such things.
The sports media elicited comments from a handful of players, none of whom I can recall ever meeting. Among other things, at least one said he would never play for a team I was involved in given my racial views. My racial views? You mean, my belief in a colorblind society where every individual is treated as a precious human being without regard to his race? Where football players should earn as much as they can and keep as much as they can, regardless of race? Those controversial racial views?
Read it all here.

I have decided to personally boycott football for the rest of the season.  I will not watch or follow any teams or any games, including the Super Bowl.  When even sports in America becomes politicized and tainted by the dirty-pool slander of the left, it is time to withdraw my support.  I am not pretending that this will grow and spread and have any impact whatsoever on the NFL; I do it because I am alienated and disgusted.  I do not wish to be a part of something tainted with slander and injustice.

Update:  Al Sharpton has threatened to sue Rush Limbaugh for his factual descriptions of Sharpton's documented bigotry.  What a laugh that would be!  See graphic above that I created back in 2007.

Europe's March to Cultural Suicide

Geert Wilders, the Dutch politician opposed to the Islamization of Europe, arrived in Great Britain yesterday. He had previously been banned from Great Britain for openly opposing Islam and its violent, intolerant and murderous ways.  The Brits, reflecting the insanity of liberal/left thought, regularly oppose free speech in favor of their unassimilable, hostile and seditious Muslim immigrants.

A mob of Muslim protesters were on hand to picket Geert Wilders outside the House of Parliament, waving signs that show they are anything but democratic or tolerant.  They want to impose their 7th century bedouin culture on the modern world and the Brits and other Europeans are only too happy to accommodate them.  Europe can't seem to commit suicide fast enough.  Liberalism is a death wish.

I don't much like the signs these hirsute barbarians are carrying.  I created the sign below as my response.  I used the exact same font and the same colors as their signs.  As always, feel free to use it, particularly in Europe, as a response to your growing barbarian population.

You can see the barbarians in the UK here, promising murder for Geert Wilders and promising to destroy the West.  They emphasize that "insulting the Prophet" is a capital offense under Sharia law, which they hope to impose on the West.

Screw Muhammad, his religion and the camel he rode in on.  Omigod!  Can I say that on the internet?  Well yes, I just did.  So barbarians, right next to Geert Wilders' name, you can put "Stogie Chomper" on the enemies-of-Islam list as well.  I am a dedicated and devoted enemy of this vile ideology and the false prophet who created it.

Troy School "Zero Tolerance" Superintendent is "Zero Common Sense"

You hear a version of this story nearly every week.  Some public school official turns in some student for "bringing a weapon to school" where the "zero-tolerance policy" requires that the student be suspended or worse.  A 5th grader brings a birthday cake to school to share with her classmates, as well as a pastry knife to cut it with; the teacher uses the knife to cut the cake, then turns the little girl in for "bringing a weapon to school."

A six year old cub scout brings his scout camping tool to school to eat lunch with.  The tool is a combination folding fork, knife and spoon.  He was charged with "bringing a weapon to school" and ordered to spend 45 days in an alternative school for trouble makers.

Now an Eagle Scout, Matthew Whalen,  has been suspended from Lansinburgh High School in Troy, New York, for carrying a two inch utility knife in the trunk of his car.  The knife is part of Whalen's scout survival kit that includes a sleeping bag, water, a ready-to-eat meal and the small pocket knife in question.  When School Superintendent George Goodwin found out about the pocket knife, he suspended Whalen from school for 20 days.  Goodwin refuses to reconsider the draconian punishment, or talk to Matthew or his parents about his decision.

This is the totalitarian mindset, where rules are rigidly enforced without the benefit of judgment or context, even when the alleged "weapon" is a pocket knife or eating utensil.

The Lansinburgh High School administration has been swamped with emails, letters and phone calls to protest this ridiculous treatment of senior Matthew Whalen, whose academic record may be seriously damaged by the suspension.  Feel free to let these extremists know what you think.

Angelina Bergin, Principal
Lansinburgh High School
320 Seventh Avenue
Troy, NY 12182
(518) 233-6806

You can contact George Goodwin directly as this number:  (518) 233-6850

George Goodwin has been called "Mr. Zero Tolerance."  I would call him (among other things) "Mr. Zero Common Sense."

Meghan McCain's Twitter Pic (It's a REALLY slow news night)

Stacy McCain posted a racy photo of Meghan McCain that he got off twitter.  She's wearing a tight sweater with a push-up effect on her bosoms, displaying some titillating cleavage.

I know Stacy loves to make fun of Meghan, but this photo really emphasizes the fact that the girl has her good points.

Chris Matthews of MSNBC Hopes for a Violent Death for Rush Limbaugh

Per Memeorandum and Newsbusters, Chris Matthews is hoping for someone to "jam a CO2 pellet into his head and he's going to explode like a giant blimp."

So Chris Matthews is fantasizing about someone murdering Rush Limbaugh in a grotesque fashion.  Or is he just desperate for ratings as his viewerless show fades into obscurity?  Newsbusters feels it's the latter.

I hope so.  To someone like Matthews, irrelevance is so much worse than being blown up with a CO2 pellet.  It must be truly aggravating to see Rush Limbaugh with 20 million listeners a day.  Heee hee hee!

Rush Limbaugh Slandered With False "Racist Quotes"

Rush Limbaugh wants to become part owner of the St. Louis Rams and is bidding for that right.  Needless to say, extremely hypocritical people like Al Sharpton, a real racist, is trying to talk the NFL into blocking Limbaugh as an owner.  Liberal "news" agencies are running articles with titles like "Would black NFL players play for Rush Limbaugh's Rams?"  The false premise that such a question posits is that Rush Limbaugh is anti-black or a "raaaaacist" whom black people might reasonably reject as "offensive."

What's worse is that leftist and liberal blogs and websites are broadcasting a fake list of "racist" statements ostensibly uttered by Rush.  One of the most despicable is that Rush said of James Earl Ray, the assassin of Martin Luther King:
You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray. We miss you, James. Godspeed.
The quote is a complete fabrication.  Another fake quote claims that Rush praised the accomplishments of slavery in the old South.  Ridiculous.  There are several other fake quotes but I won't repeat them here.

This is typical liberalism in action:  smear, smear, slime, libel, undermine, insult, but never deal with any real issues.  The libs are not going after Limbaugh because blacks oppose him:  they are going after him because they want to punish him for being an effective conservative spokesman.

Ace of Spades points out that the Left's new pull-string puppet, Charles Johnson, is repeating all of the false charges against Limbaugh.  When someone pointed out that the James Earl Ray quote was a fake, Johnson took the very same Dan Rather stance that he once ridiculed:  no one has proven the quote to be fake.  As Stacy McCain has pointed out, how do you prove a negative?  You don't have to -- it is up to the accusers to prove their premises; the accused has no duty to disprove them.

Nevertheless, the smear merchants have planted the seeds of doubt in the minds of many.  There will always be those who, having heard the smears, will believe them without proof or at least give the smear merchants the benefit of the doubt.  This is why the smear is so injust, unfair and damaging to those targeted.

Michelle Obama Goes Green for Halloween

I did this Photoshop a year ago and it still gets a lot of google hits.  I think liberals out there in cyber space think it is an article about Michelle doing something environmentally fashionable for Halloween -- I don't know, maybe issuing candy with biodegradable wrappers or developing solar-powered brooms for witches, or whatever makes liberals feel good about themselves on Halloween.

In any case, here it is again.

CUANAS back in full operation - Howling Wolf Background Restored

Pastorius writes for Infidel Bloggers Alliance as well as the Astute Bloggers.  He also has a personal blog, CUANAS.  Cuanas has always impressed me with it appearance, which features a howling woof in the woods with sunlight sparkling through the branches.  The image is a deep blue and is lovely and serene.

To have a blog background like this you must put the background photo on a server site like Photobucket, Flick'r or Zoomer.  Then you adjust the html code of your blog to go get the picture and display it in your background, underneath your text.  Pas used Photobucket for this purpose.

Pas (as I like to call him) was screwed over by Photobucket a month or so back, when another of their unknown rules popped up to disable his account.  If you don't access it for 90 days, it goes inactive and you can only reactivate it by...paying their fee and converting to a full subscription (another questionable business tactic, in my opinion).  So Pas's lovely howling wolf background was replaced by a small icon saying "Inactive for 90 Days."  Now his blog was almost unreadable as the white text needed for the graphic was over a white background.

Pas told me about it.  I was able to find the original graphic and html code for this blog template.  Pas gave me temporary access to his blog and I was able to restore the Howling Wolf graphic in about five minutes.

Take a look.  Ain't it purty?

Missing My Old Dog Benny

Today as I sat in the backyard blogging and smoking my pipe, I noticed that our persimmon tree is loaded with nearly ripe fruit.  It made me think of my beige Cocker Spaniel, Benny, who died a year ago last August.  He used to go after the low-hanging fruit and bite into it.  That old dog was always hungry.  It would be night and I would hear someone picking fruit off the tree.  I checked and found Benny munching a persimmon.  He loved them.

I wasn't so sure they were good for him though, and Mrs. Chomper picked off all the low-hanging fruit so he couldn't eat any more.  The next night Benny ran over to the tree and couldn't find any fruit in biting range.  So he started crying, Ah-wooo!  Ah-wooo!  This pained my heart something fierce so I picked one and gave it to him.  Mrs. Chomper didn't have to know.

Seeing the new crop of fruit today really reminded me of him.  What good is a tree full of persimmons if there is no Benny to bite them?

Scientists Dispute Anthropogenic Global Warming

Scientists were on Capitol Hill yesterday to rebut Obama's claims about man made global warming.  Fred Singer, an atmospheric and space physicist and research professor at George Mason University, said:
“Nature, not human activity rules the planet,” said Fred Singer, an atmospheric and space physicist and research professor at George Mason University and professor emeritus of environmental science at the University of Virginia. “And once you’ve decided that on the basis of evidence, then everything else falls into place.”
Another scientist, Leighton Steward, said that the planet needs more CO2 to have a greener earth and a more robust habitat for both plants and animals.  Steward stated that carbon dioxide is a fertilizer, not a pollutant.

Charles Johnson is Certifiably Insane

Pamela Geller says Charles Johnson accused her of posting photos yesterday of Brits giving the Nazi salute.  Johnson, of Little Green Footballs blog, was referring to Geller's coverage of the English Defence League's protest of creeping Sharia and the Islamization of the U.K.

I went back through the pictures she posted and there were no Nazi salutes to be found.  Johnson is increasingly paranoid, mendacious and libelous.  He is the sort that author Laird Wilcox described as a "bullying, moralizing fanatic."  Does Charley want to finish off his shrinking credibility in the blog world?  If so, he couldn't do better than behaving like the raving lunatic he has become.

Must Read: Robert S. McCain Spanks Mark Potok

Robert Stacy McCain takes Mark Potok to the woodshed today at the American Spectator, in Extreme Irony Alert (or Springtime for Potok and Irony).

Mark Potok is the slander merchant (of the Southern Poverty Law Center) who regularly smears all conservatives as either racists or fascists, a man that Rush Limbaugh recently described as "an off the wall lunatic."

The "Tea Party" Movement is Fed Up With Both Parties

Steve Benen of the Washington Monthly has written an article called "Creating a Monster"  (see discussion at Memeorandum).  Benen notes that the Tea Party movement is conservative, anti-Obama and anti-Democrat (duh), but that they are also not so pleased with the Republican Party either.  This rogue mob of right-wing zealots are actually planning to take on Republican candidates with whom they disagree.

Hooray for that.  Count me in.  I am fed up with RINO Republicans who sell out at every opportunity and whose only principles are their own political longevity.  Lindsay Graham comes to mind.

Benin sounds like a partisan liberal hack when he writes:
Now, the notion of hostilities between right-wing activists and really right-wing activists is, to a certain extent, entertaining. State and local Republican parties are already pretty unhinged -- pick a state GOP platform at random and read it -- but that's apparently insufficient.
But the part of this that's really remarkable to me is the notion that the Republican Party of 2009 is just too darn reasonable and open to compromise with those sneaky Democrats, as far as this crowd is concerned.
Yes, the recovery-opposing, nominee-blocking, ACORN-hunting, Fox News-following, health care-rejecting, gay bashing, global warming-denying, scorched earth-raging Republican Party isn't far enough to the right for the Teabggers.
This isn't to say the activists don't have the right to try to take over their party, and drive it over the right-wing cliff. It's their call -- political parties should reflect the values and priorities of their members. But the road to recovery for the Republican Party is to move back towards the American mainstream. The activist base seems to have a far different agenda in mind.
Benen's upset because we don't want to make the GOP into a slightly different version of the Democratic Party.  He considers the "Tea Partiers" to be some kind of extremists who are not part of the "mainstream," but never gives any specific examples of what the TP's believe, why it is extreme or why it will "drive the party over a right-wing cliff."  His comments about the Republican Party in general are just plain lies:  we are not "recovery-opposing" we are "huge deficits-bailouts opposing," which is not the same thing at all.  We aren't "gay-bashing," that's just another gratuitous insult by a man with no real arguments.  Yes, we do deny manmade global warming because it is a crock that is unsupported by actual evidence and whose "cures" will prove utterly devastating to our economy.

As for the GOP driving over a cliff, it is far more accurate to say that Obama has driven the Democrats "over a left-wing cliff."  Obama and his party are not "mainstream" by any means, but the most radically leftist administration in American history.  They are responsible for the rapid rebirth of the Republican Party as more and more Americans reject record deficits, ACORN corruption, government owned industries, appeasement of tyrants, socialized medicine, and higher taxes and energy costs.

We didn't lose the 2008 presidential election because our candidate wasn't liberal enough.  John McCain was very "mainstream" (read:  liberal) on illegal immigration, global warming and the TARP bailouts.  If anything, we lost the election because our base stayed home, not seeing much difference between Tweedle-Dee-McCain and Tweedle-Dum-Obama.

Taking political advice from a dogmatic Democrat like Steve Benen hardly seems a good idea to me.  And I don't consider him or his party to be "mainstream."  I'll stick with the Tea Partiers.

Freezing To Death in California

The coolest summer in my memory has given rise to the coldest fall.  It's 52 degrees in my small town today.  I have replaced my light summer blanket with a thicker and warmer one.

Blogmocracy has a relevant post today, "Whatever Happened to Global Warming?"  (see the original British article here).  The article says that global temperatures and ocean temperature are correlated, and currently the Pacific Ocean is going through a 30 year cooling cycle.  The sun is also in a  period of low sunspot activity and some scientists are predicting another "little ice age."  Never fear, AGW (anthropomorphic global warming) fans -- AGW scientists say that, in spite of these cooling factors, global warming will take off like blazes in the next five years or so and our planet will quickly resemble Mercury.

I enjoy the coldness.  I started wearing my Uggs yesterday, my fleece-lined boots for winter wear.  It's sweaters and sweatshirts from hereon til spring.

I know that 52 degrees is considered toasty-warm in the midwest and parts of the east coat, but this if friggin' California, land of moderate temperatures, high taxes and state bankruptcy.

British Police Suppress Anti-Islam Demonstrations

Atlas Shrugs has some disturbing photos today. They show British citizens being put down hard by British police for protesting the Islamic invasion of their nation and the Islamization of their culture.

The U.K. is liberalism on steroids and is where we will be in 10 years or less if present trends continue. Great Britain is in the full act of committing national suicide and it is a disgusting spectacle to witness.  Read it all here.

Apparently, British citizens have organized to resist Islamization of their country in the "English Defence League."  Donald Douglas has more at American Power, "English Defence League: 'It's Not Racist to Oppose Muslim Extremists.'"

State Nullification of Unconstitutional Federal Laws

Landshark 5150 has an interesting post today on state nullification of unconstitutional federal laws.  He gives some history and some examples.  In the past states have sometimes simply refused to go along with federal power grabs.  I have been saying for a long time that states should again take up the doctrine of nullification if the Obama administration pushes through universal health care, cap and trade and other economically-ruinous schemes.

Real Racism Rears Its Hooded Head in Georgia

Some restaurant owner in Georgia decorates his eating establishment with a mannequin in Klan robes.  He's also put up a public sign outside the restaurant using the N word with regard to Obama's health plan.  There is soft racism and there is hard racism and this is the latter.  This is racism where no interpretation is needed because it's obvious.  However, one idiot in Georgia does not spell the doom of civilization as we know it.  One moron does not a political movement make.  So the story for me elicits little more than a yawn.  These bozos are a tiny minority of the American population.

Klansmen look so ridiculous.  Are they going trick-or-treating?  Do they think they're Caspar the Friendly Ghost?  Or Rufus the Spectral Racist?  If they show up at your door do you scream in fear or offer them Halloween candy?  ("Where's your plastic pumpkin, kid?  Where am I supposed to put the candy?").

This reminds me of a South Park episode where Eric Cartman shows up at school in his Halloween costume, dressed as Adolph Hitler (see top image, left).  His school principal shrieks in horror, hustles him to her office where she explains why he can't be dressed like Hitler ("it's terribly offensive").  She offers to make him a new Halloween costume on the spot and finds a white sheet to make him into a ghost.  However, she makes the top of the sheet a bit too pointed and when she's done, Cartman looks like a Klansman (bottom image, left)!  I really laughed over that one.  Good intentions often go awry.  So what does this have to do with the guy in Georgia?  Not a damn thing.

Another Black Conservative does a good job of separating the wheat from the chaff in this story.  See it here.

Carol at No Sheeples Here Launches YouTube Channel "Definite Opinion"

Carol at No Sheeples Here has launched her own YouTube channel, "Definite Opinion."  She has acquired the knowledge and software to create her own videos and as of today has produced and uploaded six videos.  Click on the link above and you can become a subscriber at her channel site.

Carol continues to expand her technical knowledge and has a passion for digital art and graphics.  Good luck to you Carol in your new venture; I have no doubt it will be a big success.

Update:  I discovered I too have a YouTube Channel.  I have no idea how I got it but there it is.  I had to delete about 100 nasty comments in it today that have accumulated over the past three years, including about 90 of some fat gay guy in his underwear making obscene propositions.  I suppose he must be some uploader who didn't like my comments about some video.

I wouldn't mind trying making videos sometime but right now I have other priorities.

Pernicious Troll Continues to Beg for Attention, Doesn't Get Any Here

J.S. Kit has purchased Haloscan and are taking their sweet time about migrating us Haloscan users into the JS-Kit system.  When they finally get around to it, I will be able to stop trackbacks and links from an obnoxious troll.  Of all the kooks on the left, this perpetual adolescent is one of the most obnoxious and his posts are little more than hate-filled rants.  His comments about me are foam-flecked with personal hatred; he's a very sick puppy.  I don't hate him, anymore than I would hate a cockroach.  He's not worth the energy.

He operates behind a Tor server, meaning he can't be completely banned by Haloscan, though he will be when it is migrated to JS-Kit, hopefully sometime in our lifetime.  A Tor server quite effectively hides his IP address by substituting fake IP addresses for every one of his comments, emails and trackbacks.  Perhaps, when he isn't making a fool of himself as a blogger, he uses the Tor server to download kiddie porn and do other illegal things online, safe from prosecution.  I don't know, maybe he likes to log onto NAMBLA.

So I won't even mention his name or his hateful little blog, thus denying him the attention and sense of legitimacy that he so desperately craves.  Suffice it to say, I don't have a shred of respect for the little man and don't consider him worthy of response.  I mention him now only because I enjoy taunting him, knowing that he will get no blog fame, links or visitors from it.

There are other liberals who comment here whom I do respect, namely, Green Eagle and Mnut, who often supply intelligent commentary.  As for Ass-Munch, no such luck.  He has nothing intelligent to say.  I consider him irrelevant and beneath contempt.

And I'm sure that just pisses him off to no end.  HA!

Ridiculous! Barack Obama Wins Nobel Peace Prize

Back in 2007, when Al Gore won the "Nobel Peace Prize" I posted an article called "Nobel Peace Prize:  a Leftist Farce."  Today this leftwing organization again covered itself in shame by awarding the prize to another leftwing incompetent, Barack Obama.  The UK Times Online has the best summary and description of this year's award (hat tip Left Coast Rebel):
Rarely has an award had such an obvious political and partisan intent. It was clearly seen by the Norwegian Nobel committee as a way of expressing European gratitude for an end to the Bush Administration, approval for the election of America’s first black president and hope that Washington will honour its promise to re-engage with the world.
Instead, the prize risks looking preposterous in its claims, patronising in its intentions and demeaning in its attempt to build up a man who has barely begun his period in office, let alone achieved any tangible outcome for peace.
Bloomberg agrees with the Times Online.  They write:
While the Nobel committee has been faulted in the past for making political statements with its choice of laureates, the Obama award marked the first time it honored a head of state for laying out a vision rather than for practical accomplishments.
The honor is a “premature canonization,” said Fred Greenstein, a historian at Princeton University. “It seems to me that it is an embarrassment for the Nobel process.”
Paul at Powerline says the award may prove a negative for Obama:
If it's any consolation to readers who have expressed distress, I think this award will prove to be an embarrassment to Obama, and possibly a negative for his presidency, here at home. The award is so absurd that even leftists have taken note...
I think this award will seal Obama's image as vastly overrated ...
The Nobel Peace Prize is a leftist farce.  I pegged it two years ago.  The prize today is awarded on the basis of the recipient's ideology, not on the basis of any actual accomplishment.  The name of the prize should be changed to the Nobel Prize for Leftwing Dogma, or maybe "the Moonbat Award."

The Hyper-Sensitivity of Racial Themes in America

For many years now, journalists, politicians, educators and ministers have defended the equality of black people.  That in itself is fine, but politicians will generally take a worthy theme and and transform it into some grotesque mutation in order to create a political weapon.  Legitimate sensitivity to black people's concerns has, over time, become a paranoid hypersensitivity where any reference to black ethnicity is seen as "RAAAAACIST."

Some examples.  Don Imus referring to a women's black basketball team as "nappy headed hoes."  Imus was trying to be cool and employ the language of youth.  He was trying to pay the players a compliment on being tough cookies who won games.  The unfortunate reference exploded in his face, resulting in him losing his radio show and becoming the target of wild paroxysms of public outrage with its resulting shame and humiliation.  He had to apologize to the women's team in person and prostrate himself before the gods of political correctness to beg forgiveness.  Ridiculous.

In 1999, a white staff member of D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams used the word "niggardly" in a private staff meeting to describe the administration of a fund.  Black members were offended and the staff member, David Howard, was asked to resign.  However, "niggardly" has no racial connotations whatever -- it is an ancient English word from the time period of 1520 - 1530 and means stingy, miserly or cheap.  After a public outcry against the stupidity of Howard's dismissal, he was rehired.

In the same year, a college student took her English professor to task for using the same word in a lecture:
Student Demands 'Niggardly' be Prohibited at University of Wisconsin (02/03/99)
Student Amelia Rideau is upset that her professor used the 'N-ardly' word at least twice: Once on Jan. 25 during a class on 14th-century English poet Geoffrey Chaucer, and once in a subsequent class to explain the word’s meaning.  Ms. Rideau was outraged, and is demanding the UW implement a speech code which would punish anyone using what she described as 'offensive' language - including the 'N-ardly' word.  She urged the university not to require proof of intent before punishing verbal villains such as her professor.
Amelia Rideau is a good example of the extreme racial hypersensitivity that liberalism and political correctness have produced.  In her universe, any word or language deemed "offensive," no matter how innocent, is to be repressed and the perpetrator punished. The only proof of a crime is to be that some black person, somewhere, somehow, was offended by the remark.  Such hysteria resulted in colleges attempting to impose "speech codes" and to effectively abridge freedom of speech.

In the past twenty years I remember a lot of racial hysteria that I consider ridiculous.  A group of black city councilmen in Georgia wanted to remove a cotton patch from a town heritage display because it was "a painful reminder of slavery."  A football tournament in the South issued an advertising poster with a Southern mansion in it.  The poster had to be recalled due to this "painful reminder of slavery."  A group of black students on a field trip by bus were asked by the driver to "move to the back of the bus" so passengers not of their party could more easily enter and depart.  The NAACP had a field day over that one as racial hysteria reached epic levels.

Some people, like reader Mnut, are still over-sensitized to racial issues and see "racism" where there is none.  In fact, he has been scouring the web for my comments at other sites in order to prove me "racist."  Good luck on that, Mnut.  By the left's definition, as described in the above paragraphs, I am already a racist, as are my black conservative friends who do not engage in such racial histrionics.

This is not to excuse real racism (wherein the racist hates essentially all members of a certain race, or believes essentially all members of that race to be inferior or advocates second-class citizenship for same).  Bad taste or social insensitivity do not a racist make, not by my definition.  Sarcasm or ridicule directed at members of the racial grievance industry over their exaggerated claims is not racism.  Such people, of whom Jesse Jackson is one, are legitimate targets for satire, sarcasm and ridicule.  Contempt for one race hustler does not logically imply contempt for the entire race of which he is a part.  This is something Mnut and other liberals have not yet figured out.

Liberal blacks, race-hustlers and shake-down artists like Jesse Jackson, are legitimate targets for criticism.  We as conservatives cannot allow manufactured race hysteria to result in self-censorship.  That is what the liberals are counting on:  that from fear of false charges of "racism" we will self-censor, i.e. that we will not criticize Barack Obama and other black liberals or hold them to account.  The phony charges of Tea Party "racism" is designed to inspire self-censorship.  They just want us to shut up and the phony racism charge has worked so well for that in the past.

This use of racial hysteria as a gag for conservatives has gone on far too long.  Fortunately, more and more people are seeing through the scam and it is losing its effectiveness.  Charges of "RAAAAACISM" today more often bring contempt for the accuser rather than fear and loathing for the accused.  The race card has been played many times too many.  The public has caught on to the scam.

Criticism of liberal blacks is legitimate; however, the use of insulting ethnic stereotypes for ridicule is not.  A Photoshop that some fool created a few months ago showed the White House lawn planted with watermelons.  That is not a legitimate criticism of liberal blacks, but an insulting stereotype of the black population as a whole.  Such "humor" is never appropriate and I will delink and disassociate with anyone who uses it.

And When I Die - Blood, Sweat and Tears

One of the benefits of geezerdom is that you remember when music actually sounded good.  Back in the late 60's a group called "Blood, Sweat and Tears" recorded a string of hits.  This song, "And When I Die" was one of them.  The words are pretty cool too.

Kate's Cuddly Kitty Cat: Bahia

My friend Kate lives on the French Riviera, also known as the Cote d'Azur.  She speaks French and only a little English, but regularly contributes comments to this blog.  She is a French conservative and her cat is named Bahia.  Bahia, like all French women, is very beautiful.  When I showed her picture to my cat Inky, he said "Va Va Voom!"

I love cats.  Kate's cat speaks only French, as in "Le mew, Le meow!" Or perhaps, "Apportez-moi de la nourriture! Tout de suite!"

In this picture, Bahia speaks with her eyes, which say "Of course you love me, you fool!  You are only human after all!"

Thank you Kate, you are a valued friend!

And now for something completely different...Johnny Mathis Sings "Misty"

I think this guy has one of the best singing voices ever recorded.  I have been a fan for several decades.

"Misty" captures all the feeling of early romantic love in the form of a song.  If you were lucky enough to marry the person who made you feel this way, then you are truly blessed.

Just call me an old romantic fool!   Guilty as charged.

New International Peace Symbol Available on a T Shirt from Stogie, Ltd

Stogie, Ltd. announces a new product for peace-lovers everywhere, a white T shirt bearing the new international peace symbol.  The old peace symbol was said to look too much like the footprint of a chicken, so a new one was developed to replace it.  The new peace symbol has successively diminishing concentric rings of crimson, symbolizing harmonic convergence of karmic cosmology on a field of white, for purity.

This new product from Stogie, Ltd comes in all colors as long as they are white, and all sizes as long as they are large.  Our price is a steal at only $500 per shirt.  Save the Earth by buying several dozen for use as Christmas Gifts.

We recently sent one of these as a Bar Mitzvah gift to Mahmoud Ahamdinejad of Iran, when it was revealed last week that Ahmadinejad was actually Jewish.  Actually, we rushed him one of these T shirts, suggesting that he wear it while addressing the next meeting of the Iranian Republican Guard.  However, President Ahmadinejad had suspicions about the purity of our motivations.  He refused to wear the T shirt or eat the gefilte fish we sent him.  It's a sad, sad world when people no longer trust each other.

Stogie Unveiled Ahmagenocide's Jewish Roots Three Years Ago!

This past week a story originated in the U.K. that Mockmood Ahmagenocide had Jewish roots.  Ahmagenocide (also known as Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran) could not be reached for comment, presumably as it was his day to bake the Matzo.

Unfortunately, the story was later claimed to be erroneous before someone pure in the Islamic faith had a chance to kill Ahmagenocide, thus claiming his 17 virgins by offing a Jew.

Well I beg to differ.  Mockmood is indeed Jewish.  I proved it a full three full years ago with photographs of Ahmadinejad conducting secret Jewish temple rites in Iran.  See my photographic proof here.

Now waddya say, Mockmood?  HMMMM?

Update:  I just received an angry email from Mockmood Ahmagenocide claiming that my photographic evidence is a FAKE, "nothing more than a cheap Photoshop."  OH SURE, THAT'S WHAT THEY ALL SAY!

Chris Muir of "Day by Day" Cartoons Features Robert Stacy McCain!

Today's "Day by Day" cartoon weighs in on the Rachel Maddow-Stacy McCain controversy.  See it here!

Robert Stacy McCain: Possible Libel Lawsuit Against Brit Journalist Nigel Horne

By L word, I mean "lawsuit," as in "lawsuit for slander."  Nigel Horne, some little-known British journalist, has attempted to smear Sarah Palin and Lynn Vincent by the latter's professional association with Robert Stacy McCain, "a well-known white supremacist."

Specifically, Horne wrote:
For the past 10 years, [Lynn] Vincent has been working for the Christian-based World magazine, from which she took time off to work on Palin's book. She is a creationist and strongly anti-abortion, the subject of many of her World columns.

She is also staunchly anti-gay, backing the controversial vote to re-criminalise gay marriage in California, and - this is where Palin and her publishers might have drawn the line, but didn't - she is closely associated with a well-known white supremacist.
To which R.S. McCain replied:
While I am not litigious by nature -- my views being rather Jacksonian in that regard -- perhaps Governor Palin, Mrs. Vincent and their publishers have different views. It is my understanding that British libel law is far more inclined toward the plaintiffs than is true here in the United States, especially for "public figures" as covered under the U.S. Sullivan precedent.
Should Mrs. Vincent retain the services of a British attorney, I suspect that your publisher would be advised to settle the suit at any sum asked, as it would be quite impossible to prove that Mrs. Vincent is "closely associated with a well-known white supremacist," which I most assuredly am not, no matter what any particular idiot has published to that effect or how often it has been repeated.
Read it all here.

This is a classical example of the well-practiced, leftwing smear strategy.  Taint someone's reputation by a constantly repeated slander, then use that person's unjust taint to create "guilt by association" for anyone who works with him.

It doesn't matter how false or unfair the slander -- once it has been repeated ad infinitum in conversations, articles, blog posts and television commentary, the slander becomes fixed as irrevocable truth in the minds of many.  The greater majority, who do not know if the rumors are true or false, will generally opt to err on the side of caution, i.e., to give the tainted individual a wide berth, rendering him both radioactive and ineffective.

The repugnant Southern Poverty Law Center has done its work for the left, and done it well.  However, don't underestimate Stacy McCain and never count him out!

Taking Out the Trash with JANEANE GAROFALO

Janeane Garofalo recently regurgitated another rabid diatribe wherein she accused everyone and everything, including Tea Party attendees, Republicans, Blue-Dog Democrats, cats and dogs, lamp posts, telephone polls, polliwogs and boll weevils, of RAAAAACISM.
According to Garofalo, white supremacism is multiplying faster than flies on horse puckey in July.  Klansmen, in full sheets and regalia, are swinging from the chandeliers in major hotels, dining rooms and hash houses across the fruited plain.  Entire regiments of uniformed Nazis are goose-stepping through the boulevards and avenues of America, singing "Deutchland Uber Alles" at the top of their lungs as they hoist beer steins in a salute to Glenn Beck.

Garofalo, like Charles Johnson, is utterly and rabidly paranoid.  There are only two kinds of Americans, (1) those who support Obama without question and (2) hate-filled racists, fascists and Nazis, expounding and expectorating industrial-strength hatred as they shake their clenched fists in the direction of Washington.

Personally, I am tired of what Clifton at Another Black Conservative calls "the RAAAAACISM Industrial Complex."  Garofalo, like Charles Johnson, should be taken out with the trash.  They have no credibility, having reduced themselves to living stereotypes of crazy leftwing moonbats.

This Photoshop shows what I'd like to do with Inane Garofalo.  Use on your blogs and websites if you wish.

Related Post:  See Left Coast Rebel's take on Janeane Garofalo - Of Limbaugh, Racist Tea-Baggers, White Power and Racism.

Update:  Janeane Garofalo emailed us and said she is happy that SOMEONE, ANYONE has finally taken her out!  We didn't have the heart to explain to her that this was not exactly what one means by "taking someone out" on a date.

WARNING: PHOTOBUCKET Using Questionable Business Practices!

I started using Photobucket a couple of weeks ago.  Great, they give you over 20 gigabytes of storage space before you have to upgrade to Photobucket Pro!  Pro costs $24.95 a year, when and if you have to upgrade.

Or so I thought.  What they don't tell you is that you only have "10 gigabytes of bandwidth" a month, whatever that means -- can you only upload 10 gigabytes?  No, I had only uploaded about 3 gigabytes.  Can you only link to 10 gigabytes?  No, again I had only linked to about 3 gigabytes.  So what the hell are they talking about?

The first I had heard about this ambiguous limit on usage was when I received a warning message this afternoon saying I had less than 3 gigabytes of bandwidth left.  I thought this was dirty pool since I had never heard of any kind of limit before except for storage capacity.   I emailed them and told them what I thought of this, that I would look into their competitors.  A couple of hours later, when I came back, my Photobucket account had "exceeded its band width," which caused all of my linked photos (including my blog background photo) to be replaced with an obnoxious graphic (see above, right).

Since I had linked my blog background to an image on Photobucket, my entire background became a mosaic of that ugly little image above, rendering my blog unreadable.  Of course, to fix it all I had to do was pay Photobucket $24.95.  The alternative was to allow all of my photo links to be inoperative until October 31.

$24.95 is not a lot of money.  However, I RESENT the use of heavy handed tactics to force me to pay it, i.e. a nasty surprise that temporarily rendered my blog unreadable and my best graphics replaced with that ugly image above.  Tonight I will replace the broken links with images placed elsewhere.

And I will buy an upgraded account, it just won't be from Photobucket.  If anyone has suggestions on an alternative, please let me know.

Is Rachel Maddow a Crack Whore? Some Say She Is, and I Believe She Is.

The very masculine (yet allegedly female) Rachel Maddow (photo left) of far-left MSNBC called R.S. McCain a "white supremacist" on the air this morning.  She was discussing Sarah Palin's new book "Going Rogue," which was ghost-authored by  Lynn Vincent, who also co-authored "Donky Cons" with Stacy McCain.  Due to this tenuous and very dubious connection, Sarah Palin must therefore be a "white supremacist" -- or so Rachael Maddow would have you believe.  One can expect this kind of extremist language from hippie-burnout and has-been Charles Johnson, but it is much more repugnant to hear it from a mainstream media pundit.  This isn't reasoned debate, it is verbal terrorism.

I have spent a lot of time thoroughly refuting these slanders against R.S. McCain, having actually observed him in debate against racists and defending racial equality.  I won't repeat them at this time -- search my blog if you are interested.

Maddow's despicable comments constitute liberal slander on steroids.  Rachel Maddow stated that McCain is "widely believed to be, and I believe him to be, a white supremacist."  Apparently, no actual facts, evidence or proof are needed to slander someone on MSNBC, as long as one "believes" the slander to be true.

So with that said, let's apply Rachel's despicable reporting standards to Rachel.  "Rachel Maddow is widely believed to be, and I believe her to be, a crack whore."  Therefore, Sarah Palin's book was criticized on the air by a crack whore.  Are you going to believe a crack whore?  Especially one who looks like your younger brother?  Of course not.

Donald Douglas has more on Maddow's slander here.
Bob Belvedere at Camp of the Saints weighs in here.

Stacy McCain is out of town but Smitty says RSM will have more to say when he returns.

Update:  Chris Muir of "Day by Day" Cartoons weighs in on Stacy's side!

Capitalism Works! Michael Moore's New Movie a Flop

Left Coast Rebel has an excellent post today on the workings of capitalism.  Michael Moore's anti-capitalism film "Capitalism -- a Love Story" has tanked at the box office.  It seems there just aren't enough Marxists these days with the price of admission.

LCR points out that what Michael Moore calls "capitalism".... cronyism, bailouts, big government-big business incestuous relationships... is NOT capitalism at all, but abuses of the system.

Video of Anne Frank Emerges

This week the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam released the only known video of Anne Frank.  Anne Frank was the young Jewish girl who hid from the Nazis in a building in Amsterdam.  That same building now houses the Anne Frank House, a museum of Anne Frank, her life and times.

I visited the Anne Frank House when I was in Amsterdam, two years ago this week.  I saw and photographed Anne Frank's bedroom.  Pictures that she tore out of magazines are still attached to the walls, now covered with a large sheet of plastic to preserve them.  I blogged about this, with photos I took there, on October 9, 2007.  See them here.

Here's the video of Anne.

Other YouTube videos show the interior of Anne Frank House.  You can find them in this list of videos available in YouTube's Anne Frank Channel.

Mary Baker Returns to Glenn Beck Show

Yesterday Mary Baker was back on the Glenn Beck show.   She is one of the "9/12 Moms" who attended a Tea Party demonstration a couple of weeks ago.

Another Black Conservative has the video here as well as a post about it.

Left Coast Rebel has the video here and some background commentary.

One of the moms that Beck interviewed said she went to the 9/12 Tea Party, not knowing a soul there, or so she thought.  Then she started seeing friends and neighbors in the crowd; they too were conservatives but she never knew it.  She said they constituted "the sisterhood of the patriotic mommies."  Catchy!

False Messiah Attempts Walk on Water; Drowns

Barack Obama is so persuasive that he can talk anybody into anything...he thinks.  Today he learned differently:

WASHINGTON, Oct 2 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama's politically risky Olympics gamble failed to bring home the gold on Friday, with the Olympics committee's refusal to grant the 2016 Summer Games to his hometown Chicago.

The president, whose even-tempered personality has earned him the nickname "No Drama Obama," broke from that mold to make an overnight dash from Washington to Copenhagen to personally lobby for Chicago.

Obama and his wife, Michelle, had taken their star power to the Danish capital to make Chicago's case...Read it all here.

Today our false Messiah learned that he can't walk on water after all.  "Star power" my foot.

Are You a Neurotic Former or Current LGF Lizard? Help is Available.

Were you recently banned from Little Green Footballs?

Are you a former member of Little Green Footballs?  A Lizard without a home? Are you upset from being suddenly banned for some trivial reason by the Crazy Hippie running that site?

Seek psychiatric help now before you turn into a newly neurotic Toad.  Kissing CJ's butt won't alleviate your symptoms.  You need reality-shock therapy to rid yourself of an unhealthy attachment to Charles Johnson's ass.

Here's what you can do:  visit this blog often.  Read Pirate's Cove, The Other McCain, Blogmocracy, the Rude News and other sites.  They are your antidote and can be found in the left sidebar.

If you are still a member of Little Green Footballs, you may be experiencing these symptoms:
  • You have growing doubts as to Charles Johnson's wisdom and fairness
  • You are weary of ranting memorized slogans about phantom Nazis and White Supremacists
  • You are tired of seeing Charley impute dark motivations into every innocent phrase or comment by other pundits
  • You are alarmed at watching Charley delete your friends one by one and wonder when your time will come
  • You feel you must constantly brown-nose Charley to keep from being banned:  praise him, agree with him on anything and everything, vote up or down only as Charley might do, be careful not to link to banned websites or use language that Charley disapproves of (i.e. "feminazis")
  • You are beginning to feel like a spineless toadie and camp follower, with little integrity or independence of thought 
  • Secretly, you are ashamed of being such a kiss-ass and your rationalizations are wearing thin
If so, you are a victim of an online cult.  A cure is fast, easy and simple.  Create a post over at LGF saying that you have better things to do than hang around paranoid, aging hippies.  Ask that your account be deleted at once.  Charley will be only too happy to comply.  It gives him an orgasm to delete his members.  It's POWER!  What a rush.  It's the next best thing to being Stalin in the 1930's.

In other words, LEAVE LGF and never look back.  Do it right away!  Join the growing ranks of former lizards.  You'll be glad you did!

People's Cube Copies Saber Point Graphic

I just learned that the People's Cube copied one of my graphics.  I was spoofing Newsweek's September edition in which they asked:  "Is Your Baby Racist?"  My original post can be viewed here.

Apparently the People's Cube saw mine and made one of their own.  Some attribution would have been nice, guys.  Or at the very least, you could have used a dog rather than copying my cat theme.

Not only did the People's Cube copy my graphic, they used a cat from a site linked to by one of my readers, i.e. a site for "Kitlers," or cats "who look like Hitler."  See  my original post linked above to follow the link.

Here is mine:

Oh well. As the old saying goes, "Plagiarism is the highest form of flattery."

Here's the one from People's Cube:

Michael Moore Hates Capitalism, Loves Cash

Michael Moore, dedicated leftwing filmmaker, has a new film that will be released soon.  It's called "Capitalism, a Love Story."  Michael Moore hates capitalism, even though it's made him filthy rich.

Socialism always seems so wonderful from a safe distance and a large bank account.  For us, the toiling masses, it means a sharp reduction in opportunity for work, less goods and services in the marketplace and higher taxes.

So when Michael Moore's new propaganda film comes out, I will treat it like the first few:  I won't see it.  Let's all help Michael Moore kick the nasty capitalism habit and enjoy the fruits of socialism.  Namely, poverty.

Photoshop:  I did it.  Feel free to use it on your blogs and websites if you like.
